Curated by: Pavla Sceranková and Dušan Zahoranský, with Tereza Jindrová
Both exhibition and an artwork, Apparatus for a Utopian Image is the conceptual brainchild of Pavla Sceranková and Dušan Zahoranský, two artists from Prague, who have proposed a fresh approach to interacting with artwork. Using cleverly designed display architecture — such as a rotating projection wall, a moving image seesaw, and rolling frame tables — the curators have introduced a set of "incomplete" works by nine Czech artists working with photography, video, performance, installation and drawing. A group of artists from EFA's community have been asked, one by one, to intervene and respond with new works that quote from what they see in the space, and expand on and complicate its meaning. All the while, viewers to the gallery are granted tools to play with context and point-of-view.
Keren Benbenisty will also join the elizabeth foundation's open studios next week.
